How to burn the original firmware on the ATV495Max the right way using Amlogic USB Burning Tool

Thanks to @vicom, there is a way to burn the original firmware on the ATV495Max using the Amlogic USB Burning Tool without errors, here are the steps:

1) First, download the original Android TV 7.1 firmware from here:

2) Download the Amlogic USB Burning Tool from here:

https://androiddatahost.com/wp-content/uploads/Amlogic_USB_Burning_Tool_v2.1.6.8.zip

3) Once you install the software, follow first the instructions on this YouTube video along with the instructions provided by @vicom:

  1. Untick "CheckImg" option under "File" on the tool
  2. Import the firmware
  3. Proceed flashing as per normal process
  4. The process will get stuck at 98% and eventually FAIL . You will get a " UBOOT/Partition system/Verify patition/Error".....Don't be alarmed

I don't have the file but you can search for mygica atv495max original firmware over the internet, that's how I found it in the new zealand mygica website but the link was replaced by the buggy 9 firmware instead.

I have the original file because I downloaded it for incase. When I got the box I wanted netflix so i downloaded the patch firmware. And also the 7.1 firmware. But I am unable to get it into the tool. I get create workflow xml file failed. Very frustrating as I tried the version 9 which screwed up my ATV495X. I will gladly upload the 7.1 firware somewhere for other members but i'm failing to get it to work
